That would be the current state of…just about everything.
Work is not going well. I was supposed to talk to my boss about how the situation can be fixed, or at least made a little better. She left before that could happen.
It is slowly dawning on me that my career in radio may be coming to an end after almost 19 years. While it’s been a good run, I will be sad to see that happen. It seems almost inevitable now.
And if that weren’t enough to put it in perspective, my paycheck today was the bare minimum. And boy was it. What makes it even more astounding is how much I’ve given the company in terms of time and effort. As I’ve been saying, I may not be the hardest-working employee, but I sure have been one of the most dependable. A lot of the time, when there’s a shift that needs to be covered, I’m there.
But it’s not enough. I’ve been scraping by with part-time hours for way too long, and I don’t think I can do it much longer. Sad, but true.
And it’s not helping that I’ve heard squat from any of the listings I sent to over the past few weeks. Nothing about the comedy writer gig. Nothing from the film student looking for a produced writer. Nothing from the mash-up genre guy. Amazing AND depressing.
I realize this is part of the territory, but it would be nice to hear at least SOMETHING.
I think what it comes down to is getting results. I’m not, and that’s what’s so annoying.
It feels like something big is on the horizon. I don’t know what, but I’m really hoping it’s good.
Because bad would really, really suck.
